Oh my goodness that mane. I am not very good at critiques I just wanted to tell you that is a beautiful horse.
I really really love the hip on him. I really like how he is put together.

I like everything except his giraffe neck :P He is very nicely put together. Nicely balanced with straight legs. He's beautiful!

Also, in that last photo, I thought he was being ridden and then I saw his shadow and there was no rider... lol

He's a gelding. What part of the neck don't you like, Equilove? Its set, muscling, or what?

Thanks for the replies.

Thanks for the replies.
It's extremely long, and in some photos it doesn't seem proportionate to his body and looks like it ties in a bit low to his shoulder when he holds it level. Now, when he holds it up, it looks better. I think if his topline and upper part of his neck developed more muscle, he'd look a bit more proportionate through his neck. He's gorgeous no matter what though! ;)

He is a bit rump high and a bit posty legged behind (over straight leg). I wish his rump were a bit lower and his topline over his rump into his back were smoother without the noticeable peak.

His neck is a tad low set and a bit over long.. but could be improved greatly with muscling (which will come with riding and training him to collect and extend under saddle). He may have slightly offset knees but there is no angle to really see this.

He has good bone, nice low hocks that are well defined, large enough feet. He has a nice head (I never really critique a horse's head.. tho I might critique how it sits on the neck.. I always say you don't ride the head!). He is a good horse where no particular fault is glaring or standing out.

In this color horse, the color quality is important. He has a lovely golden color and it is obvious his coat and the entire horse are very well cared for.
